Merry Cowboy Christmas by Carolyn Brown

***   ARC provided by the author for an honest review  ***

Merry Cowboy Christmas is the third book in the Lucky Penny Ranch series by Carolyn Brown.

Fiona has returned back home. Although she didn’t really want to, she really had nowhere else to go. She is currently divorced. She has been blacklisted because of her divorce and she has lost the job at the coffee house that she has been working at. She is on her way home when she is involved in an accident. And she is pissed!

Jud has bought into the Lucky Penny Ranch. He and his cousins share the load. He is looking to finally settle down, get married and have a family. This is why he has come to town.

Fiona and Jud meet because he happened to be in the truck behind her when she went off the road. They both notice each other and are attracted to each other, but Fiona is not looking for anything new after the end of her marriage.

Fiona just felt like she didn’t fit in her family. Her sisters had direction in their lives, they knew what they wanted to do and where they were going. And she just felt lost. When she finds that Jud is staying in her family house, and across the hall from her, she is stunned. But the closeness and proximity allow for them to get to know each other better and allows Jud to overcome the obstacle that is Fiona. They begin to bond over late night snacks, drinks and conversation. She lets him in, even though she is apprehensive about the situation.

Will Fiona allow for her and Jud’s relationship to go to the next level? Or will her prior situation cause her to remain closed off?

I would give this book four stars.
